2000 26th August 1813
The northern Spanish guerrilla band have recovered from their earlier brush with the French garrison of Pancorbo. They have collected supplies from the scattered villages and pressed into service a number of farmers to replace those lost to attrition.
They have received reports of the French defeat at Aguillar, and have seen the chaos and confusion of the French retreat to Pancorbo. Now is an ideal time to take advantage of the French reverse.
They march east to the main military road from Bayonne to Burgos and occupy a small village just north of Pancorbo.
The first supply train from France falls easily into their hands, and there is much celebration as they help themselves to the supplies.
Once more the major French supply has been cut.
